Fundraising for the EVGV Trail

ELLICOTTVILLE, NY - The Ellicottville-Great Valley Trail (EVGV Trail) will host its 2nd Annual Ham-and-Turkey Raffle Party on Sunday, June 10th at the Ellicottville American Legion Post located at 6500 Maples Road in Ellicottville.  The party will begin at 1:00pm.  

Proceeds from the raffle will go to the EVGV Trail, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Nannen Arboretum.  Admission tickets are $20 and admits one person and a guest into the event.  Complementary draft beer, soft drinks and pizza are included.  In addition to dozens of drawings for free ham and turkey, attendees will be eligible for cash drawings valued up to $4,000.  Winners need not be present to win the cash drawings. 

To purchase tickets for admission and cash prizes, contact MDA Engineers, 3 Bristol Lane, Ellicottville, NY 14731 or by phone 716-699-4650.

“For an inaugural event, we felt last year was a huge success for the trail project thanks to the support we received from the people who attended, and it was a really fun time as well.  So our committee has decided to target an early June Sunday each year - with Sunday, June 10th as the date this year - as the annual event continues to grow,” said EVGV Trail Committee President Ken Hinman.  

The Ellicottville-Great Valley Trail (EVGV Trail) is a proposed 15-mile network of multi-use trails that will expand the active transportation and recreation options for area residents and visitors.  The first section of the trail is scheduled to break ground this Spring at the Town Center on Fillmore Avenue in Ellicottville, with a trail head constructed adjacent to the Nannen Arboretum.   Donations to help launch the trail can also be placed on the EVGV Trail website at www.evgvtrail.org.
